One Great Example

Matt and I are obsessed with Michael Phelps! Every night after he gets home from work, we hurry and eat dinner so that we can be completely dedicated to watching Michael Phelps without any disctractions when its his turn to compete! He is such an inspiration to us. What really impressed me about him was the fact that before he even began competing this year, he declared that during the Olympics, we would walk away with 8 gold medals. 8!!!! Not 1 or 2 but 8! He is such a great example to us of someone who believes in themselves 100%! Everytime that Michael competes, Matt and I find ourselves screaming (yes screaming in our apartment) for Michael! Everytime without fail he either places first OR places first AND breaks the world record! One word: AMAZING!!

hey! i just wanted to answer your question about the hair stuff.... well, i haven't gotten the blow dryer yet, but i ordered it. but i know a few people who have the flat iron and LOVE it.
i know a few people who have burned their hair off with the chi because it gets SO hot. but i say as long as it's not from the grocery store, it's a professional product and better for your hair.

Tanya! I came across your blog from Nicole's and just wanted to say Hi. Megan was in town a couple of weekends ago and we were reminiscing on old times like the JT concert. Fun times. She mentioned that you were in Texas. It looks like you guys are having a great time!
